Monument to the Glorious Fatherland Liberation War

Two notes - the guy on the left is shooting a machine gun with his mouth because he has no arms the guy on the right is missing a right arm and his left is heavily bandaged - so he's carrying a grenade in his teeth

In the background is the Ryugyong Hotel also known as the hotel of doom and the worst building in the world.

Mass Games - there are over 5,000 gymnasts and dancers on the field at any one time. That DPRK flag in the background? Those are 8,000 (or more) junior high school kids doing card stunts. Unbelievable.

The DMZ - what Bill Clinton described as the scariest place in the world. You can see tourists on the South Korean side and half of my tour group leaving the building in the middle. Where the dirt changes to concrete is the demarcation line - and soldiers spend all day staring each other down. Tense place.

The President and the General - this was in Kaesong

Monument to the Three Charters of Reunification

 

Like I said, it was the most interesting place I've ever been. Sad. Crazy. All in one.

I have a lot more photos - over 380 to be exact. If you're interested in seeing them, leave a note below and I'll email you the site they're on.
